Easily Elevate Your Thanksgiving Table with these 5 Things

We can’t all be Martha Stewart. Whether it’s not having enough time, money or creativity-that doesn’t mean there aren’t simple ways to make to embrace the holidays and put together a beautiful table setting. Today I wanted to share how to easily elevate your thanksgiving table with these 6 things!

1.  Serve your wine in a decanter.

No only does using a decanter help your wine breathe and taste better, but it’s way prettier to set on the table than a couple of wine bottles.

2. Using plastic utensils? Opt for metallic.

I love using gold and silver plastic utensils, because they look just about as pretty on a table as the real thing. Especially gold plastic utensils, since buying the real thing can cost lots of $$$.

3. Make it personal.

Handwritten name place cards add a thoughtful touch and a nod to a sophisticated gathering, even if yours is a casual one. A savvy tip is to purchase a roll of brown craft paper, which can be used for so many things, including a table runner and to cut out shapes for name place cards (I cut out shapes of Fall leaves for my Friendsgiving). You can also hang up a piece of the paper in a scroll-like style on the wall and have a “What I’m Thankful For” signing poster. So $20 spent on a brown craft paper roll will last a long time and offer you lots of possibilities for Thanksgiving and so many other holidays.

4. Add fresh flowers.

Who doesn’t love fresh flowers? And it’s just a quick trip to your local market to pick some up. Then decide to use one, two or a few vases and scatter them along the table or keep them bundled in the center. Whatever you prefer, because you can’t ever go wrong with flowers! Cost effective tip: choose where to decorate with real and where you can use fake. For instance, I love a good-looking fake garland. There are so many “real looking” garlands, it’s a no brainer to purchase one to have every year and use as a table runner or, on a mantle or hung on a wall.

5. Wrap your utensils.

Ribbon, twine or bakers string. Depending on your aesthetic and decor choice, tying a bow or knot around your utensils adds a cute touch. Take an easy step further by tying a leaf, pinecone etc. with the string too.

6. Mix paper plates with fancy chargers.

Pretty practicality is what I think describes my decorating style, especially when decorating for a gathering. To me this is often mixing high and low. Once I found these cute paper Rae Dunn plates I knew they were perfect to pair with some of my metallic chargers and I could worry about one less thing to clean up after.
